Denmark’s potential XI for the Euro 2020 next year (part 1)

The Danes aim to make another glorious moment and duplicate their 1992 performance as they take the Euro 2020 stage next year. Being undefeated in Group D and finishing in second place behind Switzerland during the qualification is a great way to start under new boss Kasper Hjulmand’s. Here is the potential XI of Denmark for the Euro 2020:

Kasper Schmeichel (Goalkeeper)

The Danish male footballer of the Year Kasper Schmeichel is guaranteed addition to the starting team following his impressive form both in his club Leicester City and national team Denmark. In 2018 World Cup, he surpassed his father’s, the great Peter Schmeichel, record for minutes without conceding a goal. He was named Man of the Match again during Denmark’s Euro 2020 qualifier against Switzerland.

Henrik Dalsgaard (Right Back)

The Brentford player Henrik Dalsgaard has made 47 appearances in England’s second division and scored only two goals during the recent season. During the Euro 2020 qualifying against Switzerland, the 2017 Denmark Team of the Year scored his first goal for Denmark. He stands 6’4 which is a great advantage in giving a superb aerial presence in both boxes.

Simon Kjær (Centre Back)

The Denmark captain Simon Kjær is an absolute addition to the team doer next year’s event. The Atalanta centre-back has played over 90 games for Denmark since making his debut in 2009 and contributed to Denmark’s 34-match undefeated record. He is one of the most senior players in the squad having played at the 2010 FIFA World Cup, the UEFA Euro 2012 and the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Andreas Christensen (Centre Back)

Chelsea player Andreas Christensen has the second most caps of all the defenders in the current Frank Lampard squad. Christensen played six matches in Denmark’s successful 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification campaign. When partnered with Simon Kjær in the centre back is monstrous and will be a great choice to start in the team.

Jens Larsen (Left Back)

The Udinese man Jens Larsen has since made a couple of recognitions since moving to the Italian side in 2017. He has made his debut in Denmark during the friendly match against Liechtenstein and scored the final goal in the Danish 5–0 victory. Despite his not so impressive form this season, Larsen’s creative and clinical skills in the position would bring a strong hold in the pitch.
